[applause] >> good evening. good evening. on behalf of the millions of mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and friends, republicans and democrats who counted on planned parenthood for health care and in honor of the thousands and doctors of the staff of planned parenthood all across america, i am proud tonight to support the reelection of president barack obama. [applause] two years ago, when paul ryan took over theeohner house of representatives, they promised they would create jobs. instead, on day one, they came after women's health and they have not let up since. first, they voted to end cancer screenings for 5 million women. they voted to end funding for birth control with planned parenthood, and, for good measure, they even tried to redef

on the dollar. president obama, the first bill he signed was the lily ledbetter fair pay act to make sure women no longer are going to earn 78 cents on the dollar. it makes a difference because these economic issues fundamentally affect every american family and equal pay is fundamental for that. >> ifill: yet so often when we talk about women's issues we're talking about reproductive and health issues. i wonder, attorney general harris, whether the todd akin comments about "legitimate rape" and the debate about that in the republican party, that in some ways was a god send to democrats even though it took your eye off of the economy as an issue >> well, you know, i'm a career prosecutor so the idea that someone would refer to a "legitimate rape" is quite offensive. if not shocking. and i think it highlight what is we need still to do to educate people about crimes against women in violence and the need to take it seriously and that we encourage victims to come forward. often women who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are reluctant to come forward because they are concerned t
, at the end of his speech, barack obama brought the sun back.

think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t

obama. all of this as the convention begins here in charlotte, north carolina. ♪ ♪ >> thank you so much. thank you. the 46th quadrennial national convention of the democratic national party will now come to order. of the next three days we will hold the most open and accessible political convention in history. thank you. dior's from across the country and world can watch the entire convention, gavel-to-gavel, on the website and through our global application. the entire program is also being streamed simultaneous in spanish.

pleasure. thank you very much. .. i think there are a lot of anti-obama folks out there and a lot of books defending the president. i wanted to write a book that described the answer of what i thought was the most important question in and the most interesting question. look at barack obama for a moment as a character. he is a complete fish out of water in a way. he is a guy who has very little executive experience. isn't higher life is that the law professors like turn at the committee table in the illinois statehouse or the u.s. senate or in various meetings but he is never the guy in front of the room deciding, making the hard calls. he has very little if any management experience and then suddenly he is in the most important managerial job in the world. he is president of the united states leader of the free world and so my question was how does he decide? how does he make decisions? how does he govern? not with the content of the positions are but what is his leadership style? when i looked around for books we looked at this question semiserious and sustained way and they really were
